Enabling Tempo App fields in Jira team-managed projects (formerly next-gen)

How to enable Tempo App fields in Jira team-managed projects

Adding Tempo custom fields to your Jira team-managed projects (formerly known as next-gen projects) makes it much easier for you to create, manage and report on Tempo data such as the Account and Team fields. It also allows you to integrate data from your team-managed projects with data from Jira company-managed projects (formerly known as classic projects).

Enabling Tempo App Fields in Jira Team-Managed Projects

Important

Enabling app fields within Jira team-managed projects requires the Jira Administrator or Jira Team-Managed Project Administrator permission.

To add Tempo custom fields to your Jira team-managed projects, you first need to enable Tempo products within your project settings.

  1. Navigate to your team-managed Project settings.

  2. Select Apps and then App fields

  3. Toggle to enable access to your Tempo product(s).

Adding Tempo Custom Fields to Jira Team-Managed Issue Types

Important

Adding Tempo custom fields to team-managed issue types requires the Jira Administrator or Jira Team-Managed Project Administrator permission.

Once you've enabled Tempo's app fields, you will have access to Tempo's two custom fields: Team and Account. By adding the Team and Account issue fields to your team-managed issue types, you will see these fields when you create, view, and edit these types of issues – and will be able to report on them as well.

  1. To add the Tempo custom fields, go to team-managed Project settings and select Issue types. Team and Account will be included in the list on the right under Previously-created fields.

  2. Add Tempo custom field

    Simply drag Team and Account from the side panel into Context fields and save the changes to add them to your issue types.

Linking Teams to Team-Managed Projects

Once you have added the Account field to the Jira team-managed issue types you will automatically be able to access a list of accounts in your projects. However, to access a Team from within an issue, you need to first link the team(s) to your Jira team-managed project.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Tempo > TeamsTeams__1_.png.

  2. Select the team(s) you wish to link to the Jira team-managed project and add the link to the project.
